Creating your own bespoke skincare product happens to be the biggest trend in beauty circles right now. And the new range from Clinique, called iD is one of the best we have seen. Editor Trudi Brewer learns how to find ‘my ID, my way’.
If your skin is looking dull, or dry, or needs a soothing boost to calm irritations, Clinique has revolutionised the way we moisturise. With the launch of a new concept called Clinique iD this custom-blend, colour-coded range of skin treatments your blend with your daily moisturiser is cutting edge.
What is it?
A bespoke skincare line the brand created with women’s five top skin concerns in mind. From an uneven skin tone, lines, and wrinkles, sensitivity, open pores, and a dull tired-looking complexion, there is a range of colour-coded cartridges full of concentrated ingredients to address these issues. Each cartridge fits snugly into a bottle of moisturiser, and delivers a measured dose of goodness to the skin both morning and night.
How does it work?
You choose from one of the three famous DDML (Dramatically Different) hydrating bases, including the classic Moisturising Lotion +, Hydrating Jelly, or The Oil Control Gel, and then you choose from one of five new concentrate cartridges. Designed to pump in unison with your choice of moisturiser it delivers a dose of around 10 percent concentrated ingredients to 90 percent moisturiser. You then, blend this concoction in your fingers and apply to clean dry skin.
Who can use it?
Anyone and everyone. If you want to transform the look of a dull, lacklustre complexion, calm irritation or smooth the look of fine lines, you can take your pick of the cartridges best suited to your skin's daily needs.
Why do we like?
Choosing to treat your skin with active ingredients each day is a game-changer for anyone with skin concerns and a busy lifestyle. If your skin is looking dehydrated, feeling sensitive or those fine lines and wrinkles are becoming more obvious, you can now boost your moisturiser with active ingredients to correct these concerns. And how much will this cost I hear you ask? Only $75 for the moisturiser base and the concentrate cartridge. For that, you could afford to have more than one bottle on the go at once. Being able to treat your skin with a measured dose of active ingredients is super effective, and we think a stroke of beauty genius.
